Hello Alps-TouchPad users  and  X11-input drivers gurus

As a user of an ancient UMAX-ActionBook 530T,
I found that the synaptics touchpad driver is probably more suitable
for other hardware types.

For 'Alps' type touchpad as I happen to have, I wrote a simpler driver.
Its code is much inspired by that of the synaptics.
A tarball of its source is available via a link from

Should XOrg/FreeDesktop wish to put it in its (git)-repository,
I will be happy to keep maintaining it.

Please feel free to try and send comments.
